"Fear and Trembling is one of the best-known and influential works in nineteenth-and twentieth-century philosophic theology and literature ...

As an examiner of the lives of the brain, of the associative pulses of the mind's eye, Kierkegaard has basically friends. His inquisition into Adler stands beside these descents into the deeps of the human psyche played by way of Dostoevsky and via Nietzsche."

Example text

We all know it - it was only a trial . If Abraham when he stood upon Mount Moriah had doub ted , if he had gazed about him irresolu tely, if before he drew the knife he had by chance discovered the ram, if God had permitted him to offer it instead of Isaac - then he would have betaken himself home, everything would have been the same, he has Sarah, he retained I saac, and yet how changed ! For his retreat would have been a fligh t, his salvation an accident, his reward dishonor, his future perhaps perdition.

He would have plunged the knife into his own breast. He would have been admired in the world , and his name would not have been forgotten; but it is one thing to be admired, and another to be the guiding star which saves the anguished . But Abraham believed . He did not pray for himself, with the hope of moving the Lord - it was only when the righteous punishment was decreed upon Sodom and Gomorrah that Abraham came forward with his prayers. We read in those holy books: "And God tempted Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham, Abraham, where art thou?

There was one who relied upon himself and gained all, there was one who secure in his strength sacrificed all, but he who believed God was greater than all. There was one who was great by reason of his power, and one who was great by reason of his wisdom, and one who was great by reason of his hope, and one who was great by reason of his love; but Abraham was greater than all, great by reason of his power whose strength is impotence, great by reason of his wisdom whose secret is foolishness, great by reason of his hope whose form is madness, great by reason of the love which is hatred of oneself.
